Familiar Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Track Name: Two Voices Become One Song
She sings the fire, fiercely protective
Passion that burns, creative and pure
She strikes the earth, and hears the world ringing
Patterns of promise, stable and sure

He plays the water, it rolls ‘neath his fingers
A torrent of art that flows from his mind
He picks the air, a chord roars with laughter
Playful but thoughtful, forever kind

Her earth to his air, her fire to his water
They balance as if they’d known all along
They’d find the right heart to complete their music
Two voices together become one song
Track Name: Our Paths
Our paths shall now
define two people
Wandering woods and life as one

Footprints on earth
Bridge between hearts
First built by time and shared creation

Strengthened then as cords entwining
Embracing still above the fears
The pieces of two made strong together
A structure of beauty to last for years
